5 Beauty Hacks That I Love

I am going to be sharing with you all 5 beauty hacks that I love oh so much. These are beauty hacks that work for me and they may not work for all people. I am going to share them with you all and hopefully they are beneficial to you.

Lets get to it!

Beauty Hack #1 I use tape when I apply my eyeshadow to achieve a really precise finish/even line for my looks. It also helps with doing a winged eyeliner look as well.

Beauty Hack #2 I dampen my beauty blender a little so that it does not absorb all of the foundation while I am applying it to my face. I find that it helps the foundation to look smoother and even when I do it that way.

Beauty Hack #3 I spritz my eyeshadow brushes with setting spray to give some of my eyeshadows that aren't as pigmented as I would like a boost. This aids in helping the eyeshadow stand out more and pop.

Beauty Hack #4 After I apply concealer or and eyeshadow primer to my lids I always go back over it with setting powder so that it does not crease. It also helps my eyeshadow stay on much longer than just having eyeshadow primer on alone.

Beauty Hack #5 Milk of Magnesia acts a facial primer when I am out of my actual makeup face primer. It offers the same benefits as a name brand facial primer. I do not recommend using this every time though, only when you are out of your actual primer.

I hope that these beauty hacks help any one of you out in some way! Give them a try and you just might like it!


Fall Bucket List

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love everything about it from the cool, crisp air, to all of the scary movies that come on during the month of October. I love that the leaves are starting to change color and cover the ground with many different colors; it is always so pretty to see. I always say that the trees are showing us how lovely it is to let the dead things go when the leaves fall and change colors. With it being fall I have came up with a new bucket list that I want to try with my son and with my fiance. 

Fall Bucket List:

1. Go to a pumpkin patch. (My son will absolutely love this.)

2. Drink hot apple cider (I have never tasted it before but I hear so many people raving about it)

3. Binge watch all of the scary movies that are going to FX

4. Go to a haunted house.

5. Go on a haunted hayride.

6. Carve a pumpkin with my son.

7. Sit outside and make smores

I hope that I am able to complete everything that I have on my bucket list for the fall or the month of October. Do you have a fall bucket list?


Happiest Moment of My Life

The happiest moment of my life was when I gave birth to my son. He is now three years old and I've learned to embrace every moment of his life.  Before I had my son or even got pregnant I was a very selfish, hateful person. I was the person who always said I was never having kids and I literally despised them. I guess God decided to teach me a lesson and he blessed me with a child. I remembering feeling every kick and turn my child made in stomach and I embraced every bit of it. Its an amazing feeling to have a little person in your belly. It's mind blowing what a woman's body is capable of doing. My son was born on April 29, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. The day after a deadly tornado had hit a town 15 minutes away from me. I remember being in labor and worrying while the tornado was ravishing through the town and home of my family members. Thank God they were okay and me too because I was starting to become stressed. I remember hearing my son cry for the first time and I cried too because I was joyful. It was then when I realized that I was actually someone's mom; it had finally set in that I had a baby. From that moment on I embraced life itself because I was no longer doing things for myself but for my son. All of the hatred and selfishness left my body. I learned to love and share. I didn't just think about myself after my son was born. It's so amazing how a person so small can make a huge impact on my life. I'm forever grateful my son even though I had him at 19. I wouldn't trade being a mother for nothing in this world.
